General Dentistry

Overview of General Dentistry

General dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the overall health of teeth, gums, and other oral tissues. It encompasses a wide range of dental procedures that are aimed at preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral health issues.
Some of the most common procedures in general dentistry include routine dental cleanings, fillings, extractions, root canal therapy, and periodontal (gum) treatments. General dentists also perform oral cancer screenings, diagnose and treat jaw disorders, and provide patient education on maintaining good oral health.

Understanding General Dentistry

Coastal Smile’s general dental services help diagnose and treat any problems that may occur. Our aim is to treat any small issues before they can cause you any pain or discomfort, saving and preserving your natural teeth wherever possible. Our general dental treatments include:

  • Regular examinations
  • Fillings
  • Amalgam-free dentistry
  • Root canal treatment
  • Wisdom tooth removal
  • Extractions

Preventing Dental Problems with General Dentistry

Coming in to see us for regular examinations is by far the most effective way for any problems to be detected. We will check the condition of any fillings you may have, or any other restorations that may need replacing. We want to avoid any tooth infections by ensuring your teeth are protected so bacteria cannot enter. If you do have an infected tooth then we can often treat it with root canal therapy and tooth extraction is always a last and very reluctant option. We also keep an eye on the development of wisdom teeth so we may manage any problems before they develop.

For appointments, call us on (02) 9971 8992 or visit the practice at Suite 1, 5 Dee Why Parade, Dee Why NSW 2099.
